LARAMIE, Wyo. — Part of Interstate 80 and other roads in south-central Wyoming have reopened after wintry weather.

I-80 between Laramie and Rawlins was closed late Sunday. The route had reopened by mid-day Monday but the Wyoming Department of Transportation said some areas remained slick with blowing snow.

Roads north of Laramie also reopened after being closed.

The National Weather Service says a 67 mph (108 kph) wind gust was recorded near Kaycee and a 54 mph (87 kph) gust was recorded south of Casper.
